iTrinegy Network Emulator (INE) products enable enterprises to realistically recreate a wide variety of network conditions such as latency, jitter, packet loss, packet error & packet reordering and bandwidth restrictions so that they can simulate environments such as Wide Area Networks (WANs), Wireless LANs, GPRS, 3G, LTE, IP over Radio / Radio over IP(RoIP), Satellite or MPLS networks.
It is then possible to test the performance of new (or existing) applications in these replicated networks. Using INE products from development, through testing to pre-deployment ensures applications will work and perform as expected in the network without the need for painful and expensive retrospective fixing, re-coding or re-designing. They are ideal for organisations considering initiatives such as deployment into Cloud and Mobile networks, Data Center Consolidations, Virtualization and Office Relocations.
